ALL ABOUT TEA

Happy Friday tea-drinkers!

The cold weather has kicked in and so has the warm comforting drinks! Although I enjoy a specialty mocha or latte from time-to-time, I have never been a coffee drinker, so teas are my go-to. Finding the right tea is like finding the right shoe; it’s all about finding the perfect type for the perfect occasion/mood. It seems like there has been a tea craze going on the past few years with all the flavours and specialty shops out there. By reading up on tea and trying various types and flavours, you can find a few favourites to add to your collection; whether it’s for waking you up in the morning, giving you that burst of energy in the afternoon, to cozy up with at night and curve cravings, or to help soothe an upset stomach or cold.  Continue reading

FALL BOOTS

Hello shoe addicts!

Today I come to you with part 2 of my Fall shoe staples: Boots and booties. As much as I love wearing an open toe shoe, there is something about a boot that adds style and coziness to an outfit. As I like to say, you can never have too many boots- especially black boots!

FALL/WINTER perfumes

Happy Tuesday!

I hope everyone is having a positive start to their week! For all your Fall enthusiasts who want to smell like Fall from a bottle, keep reading…just kidding…well sort of. As mentioned in a previous post, I’ve worked in the cosmetic industry for quite a few years and I’ve had the privilege to experiment with more perfumes than I can ever try to count. Keeping that in mind, I am extremely picky with perfumes as I do not like when they are too overpowering. It’s all about finding the right scent for you, that makes you feel confident and acts as an extension to your personality. It is for this reason that some prefer to have one global scent, whereas others (like myself) prefer to have a few to go back-and-forth between depending on how they are feel that day and what they are doing.

VEGAN PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE

Hello coffee lovers, or non-coffee lovers (like myself),

Fall weekends call for Fall festivities, and Fall festivities call for making pumpkin spice lattes! I have never developed a love or need for coffee, but there’s something about specialty mochas and lattes (Starbucks inspired) in the Fall and Winter that just instantly brighten up my day. I’ve combined a few recipes I found online to create what I believe to be an awesome pumpkin spice latte. So if you don’t feel like making a Starbucks run and want to be adventurous and make your own at home, enjoy!

Fall flats & sneakers

Happy Saturday!

Am I the only one who is saying thank gosh the weekend has arrived?! Here in Montreal, Canada the weather is starting to cool down, leaves are starting to change colours, and it’s time to take out my Fall shoes! Although I love Fall, I’m still a bit in that denial phase that summer has ended and winter is soon on its way, which means I’m slowly transitioning from flats and sneakers to fall boots. Here comes the leathers, suedes, and warm colours!
